Hello, I’m Susanne – Independent Celebrant

Congratulations, you have decided to take the step to marriage and are now in the planning stage and looking to choose a celebrant.   That’s when I can help you.

After years of attending ceremonies of all kinds and knowing that it was something I want to do I made the leap to train as a celebrant and become registered as a marriage and civil union celebrant.

I am a Howick, Auckland resident of many years and love conducting  weddings, whether it be large or small and intimate and enjoy  officiating at weddings where true love has been found second or third time round.

My role as a celebrant is to guide you both through the most important part of your wedding day – your commitment to each other and the knowledge that we have created a lasting special memory of your day that you share with your loved ones.

I will create a ceremony that is unique to you – a ceremony that is in keeping with the style you want and relaxed, simple, elegant, intimate, personal, fun and memorable.

Together we will combine our ideas to design a ceremony which will reflect your declaration of love and commitment.

Whether it is a traditional wedding, or something creative, simple or informal, and even outrageous I offer a personal service and would help you every step of the way.

New Zealand marriage legalities – I will answer all your questions.

As a member of Celebrants Association of New Zealand (CANZ) and Secretary of CANZ Auckland I have an ongoing commitment to a high level of professionalism and ongoing education and professional development.

I am available to travel New Zealand wide and welcome enquires and bookings from out of Auckland.  A frequent visitor to the Coromandel I love conducting weddings in that beautiful part of the world as well.

As well as weddings I also have the privilege of helping families with the funeral of their loved ones.

For a unique and personalised ceremony


  • A member of Celebrants Association of New Zealand (CANZ)
  • Secretary of CANZ Auckland
  • Secretary of the Harlequin Musical Theatre in Howick, Auckland
  • Director, Choreographer of many musicals and plays throughout Auckland
  • Co-Director of Children’s Musical Theatre Studio (specialising in teaching stage craft to 8 to 12 year olds)



We would also like to thank you for all the good work that you did for us and the efficient and beautiful way it was carried out.  I will be keeping your card in a safe place so that next time (!!) we need such services you will be top of the list.

Many thanks indeed, we really appreciated it.

Dianne and John

It was such a memorable ceremony and such a special day. Thank you.
